The Australian maritime defence industry will showcase a diverse cross-section of innovation in the sector during bi-annual exhibition PACIFIC 2017. The Prime Minister, Malcolm Turnbull will officially open Pacific 2017 tomorrow (October 3, 2017).
The highly specialised international naval defence and maritime trade show will be held in Sydney on October 3-5. The three-day event will promote the best solutions and trends from the defence sector to more than 500 companies from 21 countries.
Australian IPTV and streaming technology solutions provider CombiTel will be exhibiting at the trade show and celebrating a decade of providing Australian solutions to support quality of life at sea and for the defence industry.
PACIFIC CEO Ian Honnery said since the trade show’s inception 17 years ago the biennial event has continued to grow in terms of industry and government participation as well as prestige and importance.
"As a technology showcase for Australia and the Indo-Asia-Pacific region it is second to none," he said.
The last event in 2015 featured 494 participating exhibiting companies from 22 countries. It also attracted 51 official foreign delegations, many of which were naval delegations.
"It offers a unique networking and learning opportunity and is a direct conduit to many of the key decision makers in naval defence and the maritime industry," Honnery added.
For Australian IPTV technology specialists CombiTel the defence tradeshow is core to its global client base as CombiTel solutions are now in operation on major Royal Australian Navy ships. “CombiTel has a strong heritage in servicing the defence industry. We provide turnkey entertainment and training systems, which deliver entertainment content such as live free and pay-tv, movies on-demand, TV recording and more in addition to defence training and specialised content in the form of on-demand video and live channels from cameras or other ships,” CombiTel MD Eugene Razbash said.
A features service at the PACIFIC 2017 will be Omniscreen Pilot, a key element of CombiTel's new entertainment and training system. This application and media server software has been developed in Australia by Omniscreen, a member of CombiTel group. This platform has been very popular among many government and defence customers requiring reliability, customisation options and deployment flexibility.
“The defence sector is always seeking cutting-edge developments in technology and expects a high level of innovation. This is why we enjoy working with this sector to create best of breed solutions,” Razbash added.
